reCAP Mason Jar Lid Giveaway

Last fall, when I was in Austin, TX waiting for my sister to go into labor, someone sent me the link to a Kickstarter project that they thought I might be interested in. A woman named Karen Rzepecki had designed a mason jar lid with a spout so that she could easily pour things from canning jars without removing the lid.

I thought this was a brilliant idea and immediately signed up to help fund this idea into reality. I posted a link to the project on my Facebook page to help spread the word and soon enough, it was funded.


After months of waiting, my very own reCAP lids arrived last week. They are just as promised – a mason jar cap with a flip-top pour spout. They are leak proof, easy to pour from and made out of BPA-free plastic.

Because I donated $40 to the campaign, I received 10 reCAPs. Though I’m a huge fan of these lids, that’s more than I need to have kicking around my apartment and so I’m sharing. I’m giving away five of these reCAPs to five lucky folks.


And if you don’t want to take your chances on a giveaway, the reCAPs are now available for sale. They cost $6.99 a piece and shipping is free if you buy three or more. They’re currently only available in the regular mouth size, but I hear that they’re working on a wide mouth version, as well as lids with other utilities. I’ll let you all know if I hear anything more!

  1. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post and share how you’d use a reCAP.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Friday, April 27, 2012. Winner will be chosen at random (using and will be posted to the blog on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
  3. Giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian readers.
  4. One entry/comment per person, please.
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored giveaway. I paid for my reCAPs and just want to share.

    I’d use it to make infused vinegar for salad dressing, or to cap my home made grape juice after I’ve opened a jar and it’s in the fridge.

    Salad dressings and to-go drinks. What a great idea!

      Also, I would use it as a replacement for the regular mason tops I have on my pulses in the kitchen right now. The screw-top work ok, but saving me a little time deserves a thumbs up in my book (especially that they’re BPA free!!)

    Tori L. says:

    I would use it to store and pour cream!

    I’d use it for things I need to shake before pouring, like vinegarets.

    I would use this to take my Raspberry Tea to work with me everyday:)

    Margot says:

    I would use it for my juice extracts that I make from my garden. Then I wouldn’t have to transfer them into bottles from the pantry to use them.

    Jessica says:

    I would use the lid to assist me with using jars for storing bulk items and keeping things like couscous or chia seeds fresh. Thanks for helping to support this project!

    e says:

    Cool idea! Good for her! I frequently use a tall canning jar for a travel coffee mug, and this would be a very handy lid!

  12. 812

    So awesome! This just screams salad dressing I me. I just started making a weekly vinaigrette and we use a gravy spoon. This would be significantly easier. I have been joking with my fB followers that there are 1001 uses for mason jars and this just adds to it!!!! Love these.

  13. 813
    Freda Bradley says:

    I’d use these for many things. Taking drinking water to the garden and on the lawn mower, dressing for salads, kool aid for the kiddos, all things camping, pouring rice from jar to pan, I could go on and on and on……..

  14. 814
    Joie says:

    With the decent sized spout, I’d use it for my new obsessions: banana nutella smoothies.

  15. 815
    Amy says:

    I make my own coffee creamer, and it would be amazing to use one of these to be able to pour it from. If I win, I would be happy to share my recipe! Also, to be able to pour seeds and chopped nuts from. Lots of awesome uses!

    Anna K. says:

    These would be great for salad dressing… mix and serve in the same container! But I think I’d most often use it as a reusable water bottle.

  17. 817
    Kathy says:

    What a great invention!! I’d use mine for tons of things in my pantry because I use mason jars to store – lentils, cous cous, barley, dried beans, dried peas, wheat germ, orzo, oats, and just about anything that will pour.

  18. 818
    Brenda Miller says:

    I’d use this for salad dressings and ice cream syrups. Yum!

  19. 819
    Darla Bodfield says:

    I would use it to put my jams in to pour on toast and ice cream.

    Amanda says:

    I think this lid is kinda awesome and would work great with my strawberry syrup.

  21. 821
    Mallory says:

    I would use them on dressing jars or for smoothies in a jar!

  22. 822
    Nancee says:

    Wow! What a handy gadget!! I can think of a bunch of ways to use this: salad dressings or marinades, smoothies, juices, pouring out lemonade concentrate, and the unlimited uses for dry goods! Oh my!! Let me count the countless ways! Cool gadget and I love gadgets!!

  23. 823
    Emily Rae says:

    I’ll use it for my small dried grains and beans, and for my special salts.

  24. 824
    Jessie says:

    Oh my gosh, that is amazing!! I think that would be brilliant for salad dressings, honey, syrup, so many things!!!!

  25. 825

    I would use it for salad dressings.

    Paige says:

    Wow, I’ve been looking for something like this! I’ve been making green smoothies and drinking them at work, but hate taking the two piece lid on and off all morning. This would be perfect!

  27. 827
    Cher Kilgore says:

    Wow.. there are so many uses for me! From syrups, to tea, to pickle juice.. (i keep extra pickle juice in the fridge to use in potato salads and marinate meat) to making it so my son can pour stuff easier out of the mason jars…

  28. 828
    Eliza says:

    I’d use it to bring my cold-pressed coffee concentrate to work, along with another jar full of homemade flavored creamer. I use jars now, but a pour spout would definitely cut down on the mess involved in pouring!

  29. 829
    Carol says:

    Great idea! I would use the lid with my iced coffee. It would be very helpul.

  30. 830
    Jane says:

    Sweet! I would use it for beverages, and anything I want my 3 yr old to pour, like rice or homeade passionfruit juice concentrate or lentils.

    Amy says:

    Coconut sugar!

  32. 832
    sarah says:

    Such a great idea! I’d use them for sugar, salad dressing, and for my smoothies and iced coffee that I want to use a straw in but also have close-able.

  33. 833
    Kristen J says:

    Definitely for salad dressings!

  34. 834
    Beth C. says:

    There are so many different ways! Drinks, obviously. Salad dressings. Crafty purposes. Water for the dog on trips. The list goes on!

    Fran says:

    I would use this for the jar with simple syrup in it!

    Sandi Garcia says:

    All of the above! What a great idea . . .

  37. 837
    Brina says:

    Ooo, neat! I can think of dozens of uses for these babies, but mostly they’d make great grab-and-go containers for the various fruit and veggie juices I make. I could line ’em up in my fridge for a week’s worth of simple snacks!

    Lori E. says:

    OMG! I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time! I like using mason jars as glasses and always thought they’d be good to take-along, but didn’t like screwing the cap on & off….PROBLEM SOLVED! There are so many ways these could be used. I am going to check some of the other 800+ (!!!) posts to see what others have suggested. If I don’t win, I’ll probably order these babies right away!

    Thanks for the giveaway, Marisa! My fingers are crossed!

    Alicia says:

    Awesome! I have probably 50 booze infusions in my closet right now. After I filter them, they most often just stay in a canning jar. And you know what happens next… I pour from them, and this usually results in a mess. Love this idea!

    I’d put one on the 12 oz jar of tangerine syrup left from candying the tangerine peels I set aside when I made chocolate-tangerine sorbet.

    Debbie says:

    To pour my home-canned grape and V8-type juices!

    Finally, a way to pour my home made humming bird food, without spilling!
    And, as a bonus, the lids and rings won’t rust over time!

    Karen Fisher says:

    well to be honest we always drink our cocktails out of mason jars when we are out camping in our vintage inspired camper. which means we just painted and decorated it to make it look countryfied…is that a word??? but there is a group of us that go together and we are always trying to find something unusual to use, or make, etc.. so I think these would be just the ticket. thanks for letting me share.

    Rebecca says:

    I’d use them for everything! So excited about these 🙂

    I would use this to pour pancake batter!

    I can a great Asian spicy garlic sauce. This would be perfect for those jars!

  47. 847
    Katie J says:

    I would use it to drink my smoothies and for pouring dressings and other things. This is the coolest!

    Corrin says:

    What a great idea! Here’s how I’d use one:

    My partner and I have recently begun home-brewing cider, and we’ve been culturing yeast from Belgian and wild ales to add a more exciting spin to the traditional hard cider. We keep the yeast at the bottom of every bottle-conditioned beer, add a bit of our sweet cider, and let the culture grow. But since we brew such small amounts at time, we only ever need a tablespoon or so of the yeasty liquid–and let me tell you, it’s hard trying to stick a tablespoon into a half-filled mason jar! So we’d use these lids to squirt the perfect amount right into the cider itself. Yum!

    amanda says:

    I use my mason jars as water bottles. (Plastic bottles and stainless steel bottles always make my water taste terrible.) I would totally use this to drink out of!

    jj says:

    Oooo… these are regular mouth sized? Then I’d use them for my stash of shredded coconut & cornmeal that I use to bread fish for frying. I’d really love to just pour a bit out rather than having to scoop & make a mess.
